Bubblers are a good option for smoking as they are typically the size of your hand and also hold water to cool the smoke. They are single-piece water pipes, designed to give you a smoother hit. As with other smoking devices, there are loads of different designs available and some of these are very cool, even decorative products. These are no novelty, glass bubblers are a great product to improve your hits and boost your enjoyment, no matter where you are.
What is a Bubbler?
A bubbler is a small glass water pipe designed for smoking. It is effectively a type of bong, but they are different from the average bong for a few different reasons. One of these reasons is the portability they offer. A glass bubbler is easy to put in a backpack and take out and about with you. Some larger bongs may not be.
A lot of the features and parts are identical to the bong but are not much bigger than a standard glass pipe. The bubbler will probably be made up of a mouthpiece, a stem, a bowl, and a water chamber. The smoke goes through the water chamber and is cooled by the water inside, making it easier to take hits, especially for beginners.
Bubblers might contain other parts. Some have cool percolators, which are other water chambers that further filter and smooth out the smoke.
A good way to think of a bubbler is as a middle ground between a bong and a handpipe. Portable, but filtered for a smooth hit.
Why Use a Bubbler?
The small size is one of the biggest benefits. If you want to be discreet about your smoking and take your kit with you wherever you go, the bubbler might be your new best friend.
- Small and portable like a regular glass pipe
- Uses water to filter debris and cool the smoke
- Durable and easy to put away
They are often made out of glass, so they do need to be looked after, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be taken out and about with you. So, if these are prone to breaking, why not just use a pipe?
Quite simply, a pipe can be a really harsh smoking experience. If you’re a beginner, or you just like those smoother hits, then a bubbler can provide you with this creamy mouth feel without any of the harshness of a pipe.
A lot of people also opt for bubblers instead of pipes because of how they look. They’re not just a functional product. Like some larger bongs and other devices, they can be decorative as well as functional. Setting up for a session of getting high? A bubbler sat in the middle of your coffee table can look much nicer, and provide a better setting for smoking as well as actually enhancing the feeling.
What Are The Different Types of Bubblers?
Whether you want a bong, a bubbler, or a pipe, you can be sure there will be a few different styles to choose from that can impact your buying choice. This isn't just about the look, it can be about functionality as well as portability.
The hammer bubbler is a popular type of bubbler that features a flat bottom and elongated mouth so it sits down like a hammer or gavel. This means that you can put it on a surface like a table. Some bongs have this type of design as well. It means they can be set down in between uses.
The next popular style is the sherlock bubbler. This design looks very much like a fancy sherlock pipe which sits up right and features a nice wide chamber for water.
Double bubblers come with two chambers, both have their own percolators situated within, and this means double filtration. It tends to cool down the smoke more and also give a smoother hit.
A lot of people also love the pendant bubbler, because you can wear it. They fit around your neck so you can take them to something like a music festival. Some of them even just look like some eccentric jewelry. They tend to be pretty small, but they still give the smoothness we aim for.
Do Bubblers Have a Downside?
So, is there anything that bubblers can’t do? Well, while they are pretty fantastic, bubblers do tend to just have one glass unit, meaning they can be breakable and harder to clean.
Bubblers also don’t have any removable parts that you can take off and clean or even replace. A bong however is easier to make changes if you want to. Luckily, you aren’t limited to just having one or the other! A bubbler can be a great option for taking out and about with you while the bong forms your home rig. Compared to pipes, they offer a much smoother and cooler experience.Show Less
